EPSO Young Plant Scientist Award

 

 

 

EPSO is happy to announce the two winners of the third EPSO Young Plant Scientist Award:

  • Apolonio I. HUERTA was selected for his fundamental plant research and
  • Ann-Katrin BEUEL for her applied plant research.

EPSO initiated these awards to encourage the development of ideas and imaginative thinking in the plant sciences. Apolonio and Ann-Katrin will have the opportunity to present their research during a plenary session of the Plant Biology Europe EPSO / FESPB joint congress to be held in Turin, Italy between 29.6.2020 and 2.7.2020.

In addition, each awardee will receive the EPSO YPSA Award certificate, free registration for the conference (waived by the Local Organising Committee), travel reimbursement (economy, up to €400) and €200 grant.

PhD students were invited to work on either fundamental or applied aspects of research on plants. One award was offered in each category.

The selection criteria were:

  • The novelty of the idea or approach being taken.
  • The potential of the research to improve understanding or outcomes in the selected field of plant science.
  • The clarity with which the problem or research topic is conveyed to a non-specialist plant scientist.
